Star Wars Destiny Storage Binder Review

Star Wars Destiny Storage Binder Review

Unlike many collectible card games where the storage only really involves cards, Star Wars Destiny also has big dice and various tokens that complicates storage.  I have been a fan of the ZenBins option as they are cost effective, easy to organize, and can be used to just transport a deck with all the accessories with which to play. The other options have been foam based like Feldherr which is pricier but clearly an amazing option. And now Fantasy Flight has released their own option in three binders one for each alignment featuring Princess Leia (Red), Boba Fett (Yellow), and Darth Vader (Blue) with a retail price of $15.00. I got my hands on one and ran it through some testing.

Advantages
The binders hold 44 dice and has an open top box that can hold a full deck of sleeved cards for competition. The dice slide in easily and removing an individual die takes little effort compared to its peers. They would fit and look great on a shelf and feature branded artwork which they alone can offer. The magnet clasping is slick and allows smooth access.

Disadvantages
No space for tokens or a second deck. Only 3 cover options so if you choose to catalog your entire collection you will need to repeat covers and differentiate them somehow. Magnet clasp isn't particularly strong and could fall open if handled poorly. 

Final Thoughts
I think this storage option does a bunch of things reasonably well but doesn't excel at any of them.  If this could hold two decks of cards and your tokens it would be perfect to bring to your local game store or to competition, however as it stands you have more dice storage than you need and will need to bring something else to carry the rest of your goodies. Since it can't replace card or token storage, I wish it was all dice storage and held an even 50 making it a shelf friendly option to store your complete collection. Personally, I think I will store my trading dice in the binder so people can quickly look for what they need, and I don't need to worry about tokens or anything. While not everyone trades in such a manner, it does fit that need pretty perfectly as I seldom have more than 44 dice up for trade at a time.
